The picture below displays the prerequisites for the Smart Materials Web API installation.
To run the Smart Materials Web API, the Smart API Manager 1.6 is a prerequisite.
Smart API Manager (SAM) is an API management system focused on client, user and API registration, along with monitoring, measurement, analytics, and securing access to Smart APIs developed by Hexagon PPM. SAM maintains an internal STS for providing security features and handing out access tokens. SAM is required for cloud-based and on-premises deployment and configuration of Smart APIs.
There is an installation and configuration help available when installing Smart API Manager.
A Smart API Manager administrator/user can access the Help content after signing into the Smart API Manager web client application.
